Robert Bridges, ed. (1844–1930).  The Spirit of Man: An Anthology.  1916.
 
From The Times, 1914

Anonymous
 
  USE 1 me, England,
in thine hour of need,
  Let thy ruling
rule me now in deed.
 
  Sons and brothers        5
take for armoury,
  All love’s jewels
crushed, thy warpath be!
 
  Thou hast given
joyous life and free,        10
  Life whose joy now
anguisheth for thee.
 
  Give then, England,
if my life thou need,
  Gift yet fairer,        15
Death, thy life to feed.
 
Note 1. From The Times. 1914. Same author as 46. [back]
